I started with the red painting it on. I changed to clear wax so I could see if there was a problem going on. I also have a dedicated pot to the clear wax. So much easier and I keep the temperature instructions on the pot for quick reference.

Excellent

Very nice quality, I appreciate the ability to get a cheese wax without color....call me crazy but I really like being able to see my cheese under the wax, especially the pepper jack with bits of peppers poking out for all to see.

Great way to age your cheese

I teach cheesemaking classes and have taught hundreds of people to make cheese. I always shied away from waxing cheese because it seemed too complicated and dangerous (wax is HOT), but now I love waxing. The cheese looks so pretty that way. I now recommend to my students that they wax their cheese as well and always direct them to cheesemaking.com's wax!

Wax!

Wax is a valuable part of cheese making for us. We have had nothing but great results with this wax.
